OQO questions answered

This portable PC was supposed to be released over a year ago. It seems it’s still coming …

In celebration of the upcoming release of the OQO the company’s director of product management managed to answer a few questions about everybody’s favorite vaporware. For the most part they are unsurprising, talking up the product and playing down possible future upgrades in order to convince people to actually buy the current model and not just wait for the next version. A couple of things do jump out though.
In a refreshing moment of honesty they express regret for the lack of USB 2.0 and built-in wide-area wireless. Also, in case you were wondering, OQO somehow stands only for our product a full pc that fits in your pocket and nothing else, and they finally admit that their target markets are mobile professionals who want all of their applications and data with them all the time and mobile workers who have a specific Windows application that they want
to run in the field and individuals. In other words, anyone who will buy the dang thing.
